It was amazing creating a screencast on my search on Tag Galaxy
. I looked up three tags: evomlit, Webheads and Alexandria Egypt. You may wanna have a look at the screencast embedded here
. The effect is maybe partially captured in this screencast
Tag Galaxy aggregates tags on Flickr photos creating a beautiful 3-D constellation. I couldn't half-capture its beautiful formation in the screencast. You gotta try it yourself. You keep clicking for more photos to be added. You can rotate the globe/galaxy in all directions.
I'm thinking of a million and one ideas how this tool can be used in class. It can help students create cultural virtual tours around the world. It can help them create an itinerary for a trip. And a lot more. I had a lot of fun playing with it:)
